Abstract
DECISION-SCIENCE APPLICATIONS, INC. (DSA) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE A DUAL-MODE SEEKER TESTBED (DMST) CAPABLE OF EVALUATING MODE-SWITCHING CRITERIA BASED ON INTEGRATED SENSOR PHENOMENOLOGY. THE APPLICATION OF THIS CRITERIA WILL ALLOW THE MISSILE TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST BACKGROUND INTERFERENCE AND CLUTTER AS WELL AS PASSIVE AND ACTIVE COUNTERMEASURES. THE MODE-SWITCHING CRITERIA WILL BE IMPLEMENTEDIN ALGORITHMS FOR COMBINING RF DOPPLER AND IR TRACKER OUTPUTS IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE EACH SENSOR-S LIMITATIONS AND COMPLEMENT THEIR PERFORMANCE. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF USING A SIMULATION TESTBED TO INVESTIGATE RF/IR DUAL MODE SENSOR INTEGRATION AND FUSION ALGORITHMS IS UNDERSCORED BY THE ABILITY TO SYSTEMATICALLY EXPLORE A MIX OF CONDITIONS IN A REALISTIC SITUATION. THUS, A THOROUGH EVALUATION OF CONCEPT EFFECTIVENESS CAN BE PERFORMED. DSA PLANS TO DEVELOP AN INNOVATIVE TESTBED ENVIRONMENT THAT WILL PROVIDE MEANINGFUL AND ILLUSTRATIVE RESULTS THAT CHARACTERIZE DUAL MODE SENSOR INTEGRATION ALGORITHM PERFORMANCE.
